Common Air Conditioning Problems
- Refrigerant Leak: Refrigerant is a key component in keeping your vehicle's A/C working. As a gas, it moves through the refrigerant hoses and absorbs excess heat. It then turns into a liquid, shedding that heat and creating a pocket of cold air that is then blown into the cabin. If your refrigerant level is low, our technicians will inspect the system for leaks. They can then recharge the refrigerant with new R134a or R1234yf refrigerant. If you have a vintage Volkswagen with an A/C system that requires R12, we can still help.
- A/C Compressor Problems: Your vehicle's A/C compressor is what compresses liquid refrigerant into a gas and pushes it through the refrigerant lines. A damaged or worn compressor will generally need to be replaced, and we carry genuine VW compressors at Volkswagen of New Port Richey.
- A/C Condenser Problems: The A/C condenser does the opposite of what the compressor does: it condenses gaseous refrigerant into a liquid, allowing it to shed the excess heat that it has picked up. The condenser may become clogged over time; if this happens, it's usually possible to simply unclog it. However, a damaged or worn condenser will need to be replaced.
- Blower Motor Problems: The blower motors are the fans that take the cold air created by the refrigerant and move it into the cabin. If yours are not working, there may either be an electrical issue or physical damage. In either case, we can help at Volkswagen of New Port Richey.
- Clogged Cabin Air Filter: The cabin air filter keeps contaminants from entering your VW's cabin, but it will eventually become clogged. Replacing it is a quick and easy task that can help bring your A/C back to its best.
